Nancy was born February 12, 1949 in Neillsville to Helen (Mayer) and George Dimmitt. She was raised on a small farm near Humbird, Wisconsin with her two sisters and two brothers. She grew up picking strawberries and cucumbers. Nancy attended St. Joseph's Fairview Catholic Church, which was on the hill behind their farm. She received all of her sacraments there.
She went to Humbird Elementary School, then graduated from Alma Center Lincoln High School, class of 1967. Following high school, she moved to Eau Claire and worked at Gould for 15 years. She then took a job with the City of Chippewa Falls, where she worked in the Water Dept. and the City Clerk's office. She retired after 28 years in June of 2011.
Nancy was truly all about her family. She loved having them around and reminiscing about her childhood. She was a member of Holy Ghost's choir and helped plan the annual picnic. She enjoyed having breakfast with her siblings and her friends. She also enjoyed going to thrift-sales and became quite a knick-knack enthusiast! Nancy had a sweet tooth and enjoyed ice cream and baking an assortment of Christmas cookies and treats. She always had plenty of energy and she loved to dance, Zumba, and garden. She will be remembered for her beautiful flower gardens that she would spend hours tending.
